Printer-friendly version

Did you know that calls to mobile phones overseas can cost HSU as much as $20.00 a minute (or even more)? Because these charges on HSU’s phone bill have escalated significantly in recent months, we are now passing these charges on to the departments from which the calls originated.

These charges occur because mobile carriers charge a “Mobile Termination Rate” to the landline or mobile network from which the call originated, which is then passed on to the customer - in this case HSU.
